Florida Agriculture in the Classroom is proud to announce the 2014 Excellence in Teaching about Agriculture Teacher Winners.  We had four very deserving teacher winners this year. Gustavo Junco, an advanced placement chemistry teacher at West Broward High School in Pembroke Pines in Broward County, won for the high school level and overall Florida level. He joins three other teachers selected for FAITC’s Excellence in Teaching about Agriculture Awards for this year – Katrina Madok, an elementary gifted teacher at Gerald Adams Elementary in Key West; Katie Schlotterbeck, a middle school science teacher at St. Michael Lutheran School in Fort Myers; and Erin Verplanck Smith, a middle school agri-science teacher at Keystone Heights Junior Senior High School in Clay County.
